On April 22, 2007 Google launched the professional package of Google Apps for Enterprise. Since then, more than 6 million companies around the world are using Google Apps for managing their business. So what has been the secret of Google’s success? In my opinion, it’s as a result of ongoing service & security improvements, along with enhanced capabilities that require only a nominal amount of additional IT resources.
Google provides a service guarantee of 99.9%, which is close to, but not quite perfect. That 1 in 1,000 chance should give you pause and as a reference point, the chance of dying during any specific hang-gliding trip is about 1 in 12,500. So if you are into hang-gliding, then you may be somewhat comfortable with those 1 in 1,000 odds. I’ve never even considered hang-gliding as a viable form of recreation, other than to think “No way. Never happen”.
I’ll grant you that comparing a life-ending event to losing Google service is a stretch, so as an alternative think about losing your car keys, but with a twist. The ‘service mechanic’ (Google) can’t help you, so you’ll never get into your car again. Google’s security is ironclad and you’ll never break that glass.
